Warnings About Babies’ Exposure to Cell Phones and WiFi Radiation Aren’t New. So Why Are These Products Still Being Marketed for Babies and Infant Care?

Many parents have no idea that there is still no “safe” level of cell phone or WiFi radiation exposure that has been scientifically determined for children or pregnant women. Children are also much more vulnerable to exposure than adults.
Exposure may not cause immediate and/or noticeable harm. It also isn’t only about “boosting possible cancer risk.
It can disrupt the blood-brain barrier which can cause it to leak. It can worsen pre-existing conditions even if it didn’t cause them.
Regardless, WiFi emitting and “Smart” baby and children’s products are still being designed, manufactured and marketed despite all of this.
Broadcast stations, other media outlets, medical professionals, even celebrities have been warning us about exposure for many years already.
U.S. federal testing and “safety” guidelines are 20+ years old which makes them inaccurate and inadequate. They protect technology not the public.
Exposure is cumulative. More people are “sensitive” to it than what we have been led to believe. That is why it is important to use precaution with exposure to all sources of WiFi radiation – especially around children.
Exposure may eventually cause a variety of symptoms and illnesses including blood sugar fluctuations, cardiac issues, learning disabilities, respiratory issues, mental health issues and much more.
There is information about radiation exposure included in “The Fine Print” of manuals for personal devices such as Alexa, baby monitors, cell phones, cordless phones, Fitbits, Virtual Reality (VR), WiFi routers, and other “smart” products.
Utility companies aren’t required to provide safety guidelines with digital and wireless utility “Smart” Meters even though they also produce harmful radiation.
Antennas, cell towers, and WiFi “Hotspots” also emit WiFi radiation. Many have been expressing concerns about exposure from wireless infrastructure including firefighters.
In the U.S., the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to regulate all digital and WiFi technology. They have not been protecting the public, and this is not new to the Trump administration.
WiFi isn’t magic. It is wireless – aka microwave radiation – like what cooks food in microwave ovens. It’s also sometimes referred to as RadioFrequency (RF).
While fundraisers have been earnestly raising money to find cures for cancer and other health issues, The Telecom Industry (aka “Big Wireless”) continues to design, manufacture, and market more harmful products and infrastructure.
TV, film, and advertising regularly portray unsafe tech use and exposure as well – the same way they did with cigarettes for decades. Even Sesame Street markets tech products.
Decades of research has confirmed that exposure to all sources of WiFi radiation is harmful to people, pets, nature, and wildlife.
Some countries have been proactive about raising awareness and protecting citizens from exposure. Recently in France, scientists demanded the immediate recall of millions of cell phones after government data revealed that 9 out of 10 phones tested exceed regulatory limits.
